Videos come out choppy and laggy.

I recently watched a short tutorial on how to optimize my PC, and I'm afraid it's done something like reducing the amount of CPU OBS an use. I can't find a way to fix it so I've come here. The longer the video is, the laggier it becomes, so short videos (around 5 seconds) are perfectly smooth.

1. The Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling ("HAGS") feature in Windows is currently known to cause performance and capture issues with OBS, games and overlay tools. It's an experimental feature and we recommend disabling it via these instructions.
2. In Windows, we recommend that "Game Mode" be enabled for maximum gaming performance. Game Mode can be enabled via the Windows "Settings" app, under Gaming > Game Mode.
3. OBS is not running as Administrator. Because of this, OBS will not be able to Game Capture certain games, and it will not be able to request a higher GPU priority for itself -- which is the likely cause of the render lag you are currently experincing. Run OBS as Administrator to help alleviate this problem. To tun OBS as Administrator, right click on the OBS shortcut, properties, advanced, check box, ok, apply, ok.
4. Having the YUV Color range set to "Full" will cause playback issues in certain browsers and on various video platforms. Shadows, highlights and color will look off. In OBS, go to "Settings -> Advanced" and set "YUV Color Range" back to "Limited".
5. Multiple Game Capture sources are usually not needed, and can sometimes interfere with each other. You can use the same Game Capture for all your games! If you change games often, try out the hotkey mode, which lets you press a key to select your active game. If you play games in fullscreen, use 'Capture any fullscreen application' mode (Scene: Lethal Company).
6. Tools > Auto-Configuration Wizard > Let that run, then close and restart as OBS as Admin.

If still having issues after making those changes, post new log.

After following these steps my videos no longer lag like before. Thank you very much with solving my issue. The stuttering frames were very annoying and I thought I was screwed. I've looked over other posts on these forms and saw you solving problems, so I'm glad I was lucky enough for you to respond.

I've just come across a second issue, and it's that videos made after following this process are untrimable and infinitely long. Is there a way to fix or change this?
